Just when you thought you’d seen every type of celebrity chef show imaginable, along comes Ellie Krieger, New York Times best-selling author and nutritionist, whose PBS television show Ellie’s Real Good Food is less about celebrity and more about real life…and real food.
For the second year in a row, Krieger has chosen the demonstration kitchen at Clarke in South Norwalk as her “home kitchen” for taping the cooking portion of her 13 episodes of Ellie’s Real Good Food..
Ellie helps people find creative, accessible solutions to challenges like turning veggie loathers into veggie lovers. Every episode addresses a real-life call for help to address a food challenge like how to choose the best foods for healthy, glowing skin and how to get over fears about cooking fish. Krieger is a registered dietitian with a master’s degree from Columbia University. She’s the leading go-to nutritionist in the media today, having written five cookbooks, including You Have It Made: Delicious, Healthy Do-Ahead Meals, which recently won a James Beard Foundation award in the health category. She’s been a columnist for Fine Cooking, Food Network magazine and USA Today, as well as a guest expert on dozens of national television programs including The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN and Dr. Oz.
You’ll find her on public television’s Create TV network and we’re very happy that she’s decided to call Clarke SoNo her television kitchen home.
